Gorge on Gougères! C’est l’apéro!

 My poor non French people, Forget about happy hour ! (does it mean that the 23 other hours you'll spend today have to be sad?)! Be French and perfect, and jump right into one of the best moment of a meal in France: l'apéritif. The French love this time right before lunch or dinner so much that "l'apéro" is sometimes more like a meal in itself: you eat so much "hors d'oeuvres" that you're not hungry enough to pursue with the meal! It's a great ...

Better than pizza: Pissaladière!

My poor non-French people, Non non non, I swear! Summer is not over! At least not here, in California, where the wonderful weather is now getting kind of scary: after four years here, I must admit that I am now nostalgic with the fall and the winter season in Paris. It's strange to live under an almost constant fine weather. Time passes strangely, there are no markers... Apart from one sad one: the day the tomato disappear. I mean the real tomato. ...

Save the mimolette! The video!

My poor non French people, I'm very happy to share with you the new French and parfait video! It's been one year since I started the mimolette fight, and I wanted to celebrate it with a French and perfect video! It's also a good way to see how to make the croque monsieur recipe! Bon appétit les amis!

Another round of rondiaux? Mardi Gras beignets!

My dear, poor, non-French people, Memory sucks. It's amazing to see how it can bring you to live and feel a moment in time that has been gone for ever... (Oui, I'm looking at you and your madeleines, Marcel...)But it's like drugs : you're very close to heaven, but never there yet. It's just a sad reminder that time has gone by, and will never come back again... And the worst is, sometimes memory fails you. Disappears. Big blackout as of yesterday and all ...

Read it, bake it ! TEN Cookbooks I Love…

My dear, poor, non French people, Do you remember when it all started? That exact moment when you fell in the "cauldron of magic potion", as the French and perfect hero Obelix would say ? I fell in love with cooking with one book. "Desserts en bande dessinée" (Dessert recipes in comic books). My mom bought it one day and my boring wednesday afternoons (kids dind't go to school on Wedneday in France) and never-ending summer days were over. Whenever my brother and I didn't ...

Hey Gal! Be a princess! Make a galette!

My poor non-French people, Forget about juicing for a sec... Why start the year punishing yourself, when you can be French and perfect and decide that each moment must be enjoyed to the last bite ? After the holidays, the first thing my fellow countrymen think is... "Where are we buying the galette next week?". King's cake is the first culinary event of the year. It's set on the first Sunday of January, which leaves you one week to sip bouillon de poule et ...

Don’t hide your joy! Disguise your fruits!

My poor non-French people, How did you like Christmas holidays when you were a kid? I'm not talking about the big 25th, presents, Santa, midnight mass and tralala, but about all the long days and hours before that... My memories are full of excitement, excitement and excitement... And food too... I can still see my grand mother prepping for her village-famous bûche de Noël, my mom ordering foie gras... And us kids (my brother, my cousins, and many other friends) excited excited excited ...

Time for cocoa! Black truffles very very choco!

My dear, poor, non French people, Let me tell you right now. My name is Cécile, and I'm a chocolataholic. Always was, always will. It's a family illness that was transmitted by my poor father, who is still to this day obsessed with chocolat (and drinking hot cocoa every morning). When my brother and I were kids (and perfect!), he even had to hide his own tablettes de chocolats (chocolate bars) to make sure we would'nt eat them. (and when he moved out, 10 years ...

Don’t be a duck ! Cook magret and patates!

My poor non-French people, What are you cooking when the weather is cold as a duck? Un froid de canard is that terrible  cold weather you think is kind of romantic when you're thinking of it in the midst of summer heat, and totally depressing when it's actually happening and you suddenly feel that you've been converted into a gigantic icecube... I live in LA so I really can't complain about that kind of problem anymore, but today the weather is not that great, ...

Salt and sablés, sandy cookies à la Frenchie!

My dear non-French people, Forget about cookies. They are so American ! And actually, French people are better at making them... Oui oui, it's true ! That was basically the point of a very popular ad when I was a kid. This poor American girl was calling her parents to tell them the cookies she was eating in France were almost as good as her mom's... We loved the idea so much that we would always repeat the last sentence "Poor Kate, alone in France!"... Now ...
